Here is a little sample of My Family Tale
Tatham Smith Family Tale
This book is dedicated to my babies Jamie and Emma.
Jamie says this book inspires him to be a book
writer. Emma says she is already a book writer.
On a bright chilly day far, far away in a breezy place called
Aberdeen, Scotland a bonny bairn laddie was born. This
rascally baby boy was so playful that they knew he would never
grow up, so they named him Peter, like Peter Pan. Peter said
"awk aye" in a land where they knew what that meant. He was
surrounded by purple heather, rolling hills, thistles, bagpipes,
family, and friends. Peter kicked soccer balls, hit table tennis
balls with paddles, and played all day.
All the way over on the other side of the world a beautiful
little girl name Carol was being born in a warm and
happy place called San Diego, California.
The sun shown on her cheeks and she wiggled her toes
in the sand. Carol did 1000 cartwheels and
50 back handsprings... in a row! Carol grew up to be
kind hearted, clever, and strong.
One day a good fairy whispered in Carol's ear... the good fairy
said "Prague". Like a butterfly to Mexico, Carol made her way
to the mysterious medieval land called Prague. Prague had old
buildings in many colors, cobblestones, puppets, and a river
running through it. Carol knew she was supposed to be there
but she did not know why. For years and years Carol did back
bends, ate smazeny syr, danced, and waited to find out why the
fairy had whispered in her ear.
